Event Planning

The property is intended for you to use as your own family farm.

We here at Engelbrecht Farm believe in a true family and friends wedding. Where both sides of the new to be family, and their friends come together can have a celebration of love and life. Engelbrecht Farm allows you the time and the ability to do your own decorating, set-up and catering. Imagine your creative enjoyment decorating your own barn wedding with your family and friends. However if you prefer, we do have a list of several great decorators and caterers in the area that can bring your dream day to reality.

You will have the full farmstead wedding utilizing several of the structures. The house can be the core family retreat area but is intended for the bridal party to prepare themselves. In addition, the three bedrooms can handle overnight guests and a modern kitchen for you to prepare private meals.

The Barn is the largest in the area with 4,500 square feet under the roofs. Adjacent to the barn is the old concrete feed lot which covers 4,000 square feet which can be covered with a tent or left open for a true outdoor barn wedding. The floors in the barn are concrete with the second floor being wood. Also, other areas of the property may be explored and used as photography backdrops. You can even schedule to have your engagement photos taken once the wedding booking has been made.

Venue Capacity

The barn is split up into three major areas. The loafing shed is open on one end with a capacity of 140. The main part of the barn is split into the ground level and hayloft. The ground level can seat 150 people and 72 people can sit in the barn’s hayloft which overlooks the ground level. A tent can be placed on the concrete adjacent to the barn or in the south pasture next to the barn. Please keep in mind that these are average figures. Your final maximum attendance will be dependent on your particular layout.Click Here to Download Floor Plan.

A Special Note

We know we’re not like other venues. We’ve strived to be this way from the beginning. We feel a wedding should be felt as a special moment, because it is a special moment. It shouldn’t be caught up in the chaos of worrying about time and constraints. We believe in giving freedom to have your close friends and family come together and help you with a wedding. Because a wedding is about two people and two families coming together. We also know when you’re starting your life that finances are tight, which is why we stick to and believe in fair pricing.

If you would have met our grandmother, she would have insisted on welcoming you and giving a hug. That’s how we were raised. This farm is special. It’s special in how it was built, restored and the people whom have come and gone. But this entire entity was based from giving a welcome feeling and sharing.

From the Engelbrecht family and all the people whom help make the farm what it is, we really do mean “Welcome to Engelbrecht Farm”.
